I have always greatly admired Brigitte Gabriel and this is an excellent example of why that is true for me. While Brigitte was addressing an audience from a panel on Benghazi that also featured Frank Gaffney and Clare Lopez, they were asked by a female Muslim law student about fighting Islamic ideology. Brigitte was quick to take the question and she simply destroyed this woman and quickly.
Brigitte pointed out that yes, there are 1.2 billion Muslims on the planet. 75% of them are peaceful, but the last 15 to 25% are not. She says those numbers total as much as 300 million, the population of the United States. Then she went on to point out that the peaceful majority is irrelevant went if comes to mass murder and genocide… look at the Nazis, the Russians, the Chinese and the Japanese. They killed hundreds of millions in total and the vast majority of their citizens were peaceful… it didn’t matter at all. Because the driving ideology was one of superiority, elitism, communism and in some cases, theocracy.
From The RightScoop:
This Heritage event on Benghazi has gotten a lot of press over the last day or two, with the left claiming the event turned ‘ugly‘ and that the Muslim woman was ‘pounced on’ and ‘bullied’ by members of the panel.
But after watching it myself, that characterization couldn’t be more wrong. In fact Brigitte Gabriel’s answer to this Muslim woman is perhaps the best answer I’ve ever heard to the ‘peaceful Muslims’ question.
If you want to watch the full video that includes a response by Frank Gaffney in the beginning, watch below:
I thought that Brigitte’s response was thoughtful and honest. It was not an attack… it was a statement of facts. Brigitte asked the Muslim woman why she came to a Benghazi panel to complain about the plight of Muslims instead of asking how our government should address the death of four Americans there in Libya. Good question.
This panel also discussed the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrating the Obama Administration. Which it has and Obama has protected this terrorist group and furthered their interests at every turn. They also brought up Obama funding Jihadists in their quest to destroy the United States, Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton attempting to impose Sharia blasphemy laws on Americans and Al Jazeera America being an organ of “enemy propaganda.” All of that is absolutely true and fair game. But, the media is incensed that they attacked a poor, innocent Muslim plant. Typical.
Heritage hosted Monday’s gathering in conjunction with the Benghazi Accountability Coalition, a federation coordinated by Andrew McCarthy (prosecutor of the Blind Sheik, Omar Abdel Rahman) and including 15 groups such as Heritage, Judicial Watch and the Traditional Values Coalition. I wholeheartedly support them and always have.
